Munich Munchen Top Rated Attractions And Travel Guide  

Munich, or Munchen in German, has a lot of top rated attractions. A visitor should make time to view them leisurely to appreciate their grandiose and beauty.

If you want to learn how the people in West Germany lived, go to the DDR Museum. It is a small museum, but has a lot of interesting videos and informative history for the tourist.
Take a whiff of fresh air at the Englischer Garten (English Garden). It is the oldest landscape garden in the whole of Europe. It also has a lake where one can go boating, a Chinese pagoda and a Greek temple.

The most famous icon of Munich is the Frauenkirche (Church of our Blessed Lady). It is imposing in size but simple in style. There is none of the usual gothic adornments.  Though the interior is gothic, the altar alone is of baroque style as it was redone in the 18th century. 

Another famous landmark is the Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall). It took many decades to complete this landmark, with the construction starting in 1867 and finishing in 1909.  The architecture is something of a controversy, but it is definitely worth a visit.

Visit the Marienplatz, which was instituted by Henry the Lion in 1158. The humble salt and grain market is now a thriving tourist center. Listen to the bells of the town hall’s tower pealing at 11 am and 5 pm.

For those of you who like a fantastic view of the city, climbing the tower of the oldest parish church in Munich is a good bet. The church is called St. Peter's and is in gothic style.

Walk through the vast West Park, which was made in 1983 for the International Garden Show. You can relax in the garden or have fun in any of the playgrounds or enjoy the amphitheatre and the lake.

It can be said that Munich is a great place to spend your holidays.
